Author’s Note: The year just passed marks the first since its inception in 2001 when I made no posts to this venerable blog. Granted, 2001 and 2002 each saw precisely one post, but still. The Death of Blogs happened to have been widely speculated in 2013–and I was busier living my life than I’ve been in a long, long time–so don’t feel sorry for me. I love the cathartic experience of writing here and I hereby resolve that 2014 will see a return to my former loquacity on topics I deem notable. It’s a large mountain to climb to regain readership and commenters, I know. But I wrote in relative silence and obscurity for years–and I’m willing to do it again because, if I’m to believe myself a writer, I must write.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. The dark decade of the two thousand aughts is now a full year in the rear-view mirror and for some, the time has never been better to move forward with a foot on the gas.

Say what you will about Barack Obama, the brother keeps in touch.

The Internet and technology continue to–in the immortal words of the great Muhammad Ali–stun and amaze ya, don’t they?

I am pleased to report I have been following my heart and pursuing my dreams and making strides at becoming a writer. My work on the Open Salon group blogging project has been getting positive reaction and I have enjoyed the happy consequence of making new and interesting friends in the bargain. Salon’s editors promise the Open project will move from its current invitation-only status to a public release soon, so IJHTS readers will be able to see some of the things I’ve been up to and can check out the very high-level work of other members of the Open Salon community.
